Botham can be a good example to other people: Sexologist
Mumbai, Aug 16: Sir Ian Botham has successfully overcome his impotency issues, according to an Egyptian doctor Dr. Sherif El Wakil, who recently treated him.
Speaking exclusively over his mobile from London, he said, "the clinical studies are very good and I have seen great results so far in my clinic".
The 60-year-old former English cricketer Botham admitted he had four sessions of shockwave therapy to prevent erectile dysfunction in the future.
Interestingly, Botham is not the first international cricketer being treated for impotency, but few cricketers from Asian region too are treated by him.
"In my Sexual Aesthetic Centre, I am used to welcome so many high profile international patients whether from the Cricket society, the sports industry or show business from Asia and from all over the world and I am sure you would respect my decision not to disclose any identity or insinuations that might occur out of patients confidentiality and respect".
"Other players actually should not shy away from these types of problems because if it is left it gets worse. Unfulfilling sexual relationship could lead to unhappy life in general, frustration, broken families, weak performance at work or in life and negative impact on relationships. The benefit of somebody like Sir Ian Botham with his charisma, history, background and fame, when he came forward to raise the awareness about this treatment, he gave a very good example to other people".
"Other players could be concerned about their image and the taboo associated with this treatment but that is exactly what we are trying to break, There is no shame to come forward and talk about it. Hats off to Sir Ian Botham for breaking the taboo in the society".
Vigore is an innovative but clinically proven treatment for improvement of erectile function in men who notice erectile weakness caused by reduced blood flow to the penis. Treating erectile weakness with shockwaves is a new application of a well established technology (Lithotripsy); the objective is to treat the underlying cause of erectile weakness and not just the symptoms.
The treatment goal is the restoration of sexual function by achieving and maintaining a satisfactory erection.
How does it work ?
Low Intensity Shockwaves (LISW) used during the treatment promote angiogenesis - a natural process of new blood vessel formation. This process restores the supply of blood to the penis on the micro-vascular level thus improving erectile function in men noticing erectile weakness.
These shockwaves are applied to the entire length of the penis and Crus. Because acoustic (shock) waves are not harmful to the human body the use of LISW is completely safe, and to date there are no reported side effects after hundreds of patients treated worldwide.
The Vigore method is dedicated for men with erectile weakness of organic origin and will not be effective in men whose problems are caused by psychological factors.
We use Renova technology - the most advanced second generation shockwave therapy device designed specifically for this treatment. Vigore is a linear application and surpasses previous point technology.
